About the Owner

I have visited the Algarve since I was a little girl when my parents fell in love with the rustic nature of the country and friendly people of the Algarve.

Having spent many holidays there my parents finally bought this land and built the villa in the '80's.

Over the years we have all spent many happy holidays and long weekends around the pool or on the beach which is a short drive away.

As the property is mainly used as a second family home it is kept to a high standard for those that wish to rent it - we do this to cover some of our costs of keeping the place in the family.

I now look after the upkeep and lettings of the villa and would be very happy to assist you with any questions you have whilst considering your holiday.

We look forward to hearing from you & welcoming you to our

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic and spacious villa for a family holiday. With its 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms it allows families to enjoy all comfort. Walking from your bedroom directly onto the terrace with a magnificant view on the mountains. The pool is great fun. From the sunbeds around the pool, we as parents could observe what the childeren were doing. The accomodation is only a few minutes drive from the nice village and the beaches are reachable within half an hour. Great place !

An absolute gem

  • 5 of 5

I’ve visited this stunning villa twice and it’s an absolute gem. Perfect location in an ideal setting with breathtaking views over the valley, but five minutes from the local Intermarche. The accommodation is spotless, truly home from home with everything you need, plus a fantastic upper terrace above the pool - great for leisurely breakfasts or alfresco suppers. A little piece of paradise.

What a Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We have now visited Casa Faroba for many years and it never fails to deliver on the wow factor! Clean, airy, so many facilities and set in the most beautiful setting with a magnificent swimming pool and a good variety of local reasonably-priced restaurants.

After every memorable stay, we return home completely relaxed after having had the most perfect holiday.
